Insolvencies of insurance companies are usually major cases, involving large numbers of professionals, and most now contain a cross-frontier element, yet very little has been written on the subject.

This Special Report tackles the issues involved in a practical and thoughtful manner. Examining the legal regime as well as practice and procedure in each of the three major insurance jurisdictions - the US, England and Bermuda, along with several others - it identifies the critical issues and potential problems in each one.

  • Fills an important gap - the first high-level practitioner work on an increasingly important subject
  • Systematically examines the three major insurance jurisdictions
  • Clear and concise presentation, highlighting practical issues and likely problems.
